As I Age My Teeth Are Looking Longer. How Can I Stop This? | Palm Beach Gardens Dentist

Aging is something that can’t be helped – it’s inevitable. And as it happens, our bodies begin to break down. Aches and pains are becoming increasingly apparent and bones become more brittle. The same goes for our mouths. Not only do our teeth begin to break down, but our gums do as well. The term “long in the tooth”? It originated from gum recession.

Gum recession is the progressive loss of gum tissue covering the teeth and jawbone. To find out more, click here.
